Luxury coastal holiday home perched above Porth Beach

Perched on the hillside above Porth beach, the aptly-named The Lookout is a stunning new building which takes advantage of its enviable location and views. Championing its location, the home has been sympathetically styled with a beachside vibe. With a keen eye for interior design, the owner has carefully chosen a coastal-inspired colour palette, heightened by bespoke murals, original artwork, and limited edition prints by iconic photographer Slim Aaron. Creating a sense of wellbeing, The Lookout is Cornwall’s very own Malibu beach house.

The Lookout’s outside space is equally impressive. The large patio terrace has plenty of outdoor seating and a charcoal bbq to allow guests to dine al fresco.

While Porth beach is only a five-minute stroll away, here are some suggestions for local days out.

Opposite the private road leading to the house lies Trevalgue Head, also known as Porth Island. On this stunning headland sits the site of an Iron Age Fort with defensive ramparts and two round barrows dating from the early Bronze Age. The South West Coast Path leads to the footbridge over a steep rock gully to access the site, which makes for a hair raising experience.

Whilst Porth beach is an easy accessible beach, if you fancy experiencing a hidden gem and are feeling energetic. Whipsiderry beach was voted in the top 20 of Europe’s best beaches in the Sunday Times. Within 100 metres of the house, surrounded by cliffs, revealing rock pools and caves at low tide, this is the secret beach loved by the locals, with dogs allowed all year. At low tide the sands stretch around half a mile to Watergate Bay. Access is via steep sets clinging to the cliff face, but is worth the effort to discover Zacry’s islands, Fruitful Cove and Cathedral Cavern.

For adrenaline junkies wanting to try Coasteering or slightly more sedate stand up Paddle Boarding and Kyaking, Newquay Activity Centre offers lessons and experiences.

Just around the left side headland, Lusty Glaze Activity Centre offers the thrill of Terror Tightrope Walking across cliffs, Surf lessons, Banana Boat rides, Jet Ski lessons, High Speed and Coastal boat trips. Just choose your level of thrill!
